According to Kevin Niksarli, M.D. of Manhattan LASIK Center, even though the iLASIK™ Procedure is not without risk, wearing contacts has its own risks. Infections with contact lenses can occur, in fact they are an order of magnitude more common when compared to the iLASIK procedure.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2009 -- Board Certified Eye Surgeon Dr. Kevin Niksarli, M.D. of Manhattan Lasik Center is to Review Pros and Cons of Contact Lenses vs iLASIK at an international meeting starting on 7/1/2009 in New York, NY. He is one of the featured guest speakers at the Tenth Armenian Medical World Congress Specialty Day in Ophthalmology. The yearly meeting attracts physicians and surgeons from around the world, and it is in its tenth year running.
The iLASIK™ Procedure is not without risk, but wearing contacts has its own unique risks. Infections with contact lenses can occur, especially when they are not cared for properly. In fact they are an order of magnitude more common when compared to the iLASIK procedure, states Kevin Niksarli, M.D. of Manhattan LASIK Center. So considering this possibility, the hassle of contacts and the lifetime costs of wearing contacts, it may be wise to consider the iLASIK Procedure.
Certain patients may also be more inclined to get contact lens related infections, such as those living in warmer climates, or who sleep with contacts, and/or wear them for weeks at a time without removing them. Overnight wear of contact lenses has been shown to be a major risk factor, even if they are approved for it and dispensed accordingly. It is also wise to seek an eye-care professional as soon as the contacts become irritating and untolerable, states Kevin Kevork Niksarli, M.D. of Manhattan Lasik Center and Newsight Laser Center in New York. The discussion at the meeting also contains up to date information on newest vision correction techniques and technologies, including LASIK, iLASIK, IntraLASIK, Advanced Surface Ablation, among others.
